After 36 years of reporting, Patrice Walsh to retire from 13WHAM

A Q&A with Patrice Walsh about her 36-year career at 13WHAM News

(WHAM) - For everything, there is a season.

For Patrice Walsh, the season of reporting news in Rochester has spanned nearly four decades, starting in 1980 at WOKR-TV.

It is not an easy day for us and certainly not for her. Thursday has been filled with a few shed tears as she bids farewell to co-workers, friends, and members of her WHAMily.

She covered stories of tremendous joy, unspeakable pain, wonderful events, and terrible tragedies.

We talked with Patrice about her time covering news and life in Rochester over the last 36 years - and paid tribute to her work here.

Patrice, we will miss you dearly and wish you all the best in this next chapter of your life. We love you!
